Innovative Solutions to Managing Risk

About Us

With our main office located in the commercial capital of the Arabian Gulf, Dubai, PWS Gulf delivers innovative and complex risk solutions across the region and elsewhere.

Our expertise in the Middle East and beyond is reflected in our own geographical distribution of clients in the Middle East, South and East Asia and Africa. Our services are based on a long history and experience of working with our client partners to meet their risk needs in an ever changing global environment.

What We Do

For everything we do, our core emphasis is the provision of high quality service.

  • We transact both direct insurance and reinsurance for clients in specific fields.
  • We employ a multinational team with more than 100 years combined experience in the region.
  • Our main focus is the provision of insurance or reinsurance programmes for the marine, industrial, construction, financial institutions and jewellery industries.

Our Company

We always put our clients’ interests and welfare first and give priority to forming long-term relationships. Our commitment is exemplified by the fact that we are one of the very few brokers in the world who can provide a six day a week service.

The company’s roots are within the PWS Group. It was founded by Messrs. Pearson, Webb, and Springbett in London in 1964 as a Lloyd’s reinsurance broker; the company name was later shortened to PWS during the 1980s. Continued organic growth lead to the opening of further companies.

Our Raison d’être

We go beyond the simple placement of insurance risks. We are committed to working with our clients to offer a range of services to identify your risks, work with you to structure your risk management approach and provide access to the world’s leading markets to arrange programmes which are modelled to meet your needs.

Our History

PWS Gulf was founded in Dubai in 1998 and is able to efficiently transact a broad range of insurance and reinsurance classes in addition to the traditional Property and Casualty classes. Having hired a team of dedicated professionals, we are committed to always ensuring a high standard of service for our clients. In addition, although we transact reinsurance business, we also have developed relationships with direct clients particularly in the Marine, Contracting, and Financial Institutions fields.

Our Clients

At PWS Gulf, the client’s needs always come first, unlike many insurance organisations which so often put their own goals and agenda ahead of those of their clients. We will therefore do our best to be innovative, efficient, and to seek solutions to your insurance needs. In particular, we tailor make insurance wordings to our clients precise requirements, rather than giving them “off the shelf ” products.
